      I know this isn't really a CGIDEV2 issue- but I am trying to set up an windows XP machine (using IBM client aceess console) to be a console for my company's AS400 & am entirely unable to figure out why it doesn't work.  Our AS400 is on OS v5r4, my client access is 6.1.  I don't know how to check to see which AS400 we physically have. I already have:
      1. Loaded client access
      2. Set up the iseries "modem"
      3. checked for conflicts on the XP machine
      4. tried this with both a standard rs232 cable AND a null modem cable (since I couldn't find anything that specified which was needed on the IBM site)

      did I miss any steps?!

      I am by no means an expert, but to connect you are using the console lan adapter. You must dedicate one port on the iseries to be the lan adapter. Signon to

        Signon to SST.   STRSST

        Once signed on,  tale an option

        8. Work with service tools user IDs and Devices
        Then
        4. Configure service tools LAN adapter

        Internet address  . . . . . .   10.14.51.10                            
        Gateway router address  . . .   10.14.51.2                             
        Subnet mask . . . . . . . . .   255.255.255.0                          
        Host name for service tools .   AHOSTNAME                           
        Node  . . . . . . . . . . . .   000000000000    (0 is default)         
        Duplex  . . . . . . . . . . .   AUTO            HALF, FULL, AUTO       
        Network speed . . . . . . . .   AUTO            4, 10, 16, 100, AUTO   
                                                                               
        Ethernet standard . . . . . .   ETHV2           ETHV2       

        You will need to activate the IP address
        F14=Activate



        I used the gateway address as the address on the PC.  10.14.51.2 

           Now the console lan adaper would respond.    This is on a 720 which did not have a twinax device. 

        But option 3 from Work with service tools user IDs and Devices

                 Select one of the following:                                 
          Console type . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  3            
             1. Twinaxial                                            
             2. Operations console(Direct)                           
             3. Operations console(LAN)                              
             4. Hardware management console(HMC)                     
        Current state of console tag   . . . . . . . .  0            

        You can change this to 3. 


        Now,  be cautious,  this has caused me some grief.   As I got our system changed to HMC,  then the iseries could not find the load sources.  It took a slip (restore) install to find the information on the disk.  (I had to reload the PTF's).   I never lost any information,   but I had to go though several IBM'ers before I got an answer.   Just be cautious.

          Hi

          Console with an rs-232 cable ? :-O
          I've never heard of a console working on this. On Lan, on Twinax if available, but on rs-232...
          Are you trying to connect remotely ? Is this really a console you want or a simple terminal display ?

          Regards,
          Jean-Marc
